Carlsbad Unified School District Reviews
The administration were friendly and willing to help. There were, however, some teachers I worked with whose competency and attitudes towards certain topics or students were seriously questioned. The School is very close and the departments with extracurricular remain top notch. The students I was with were great people, but upon returning to visit as an alumni, the new students were shockingly obnoxious and rude for the most part. It was disgusting to see. But the vibe and administration remain great.
The two high schools in the district offer phenomenal options depending on what the student enjoys. Carlsbad High School is far more established than Sage Creek, so many of their sports, arts, and elective programs are well run. Some of their teams are the best in the state or even nationally ranked. Sage Creek High School is far newer and its programs are still being fleshed out; however, the quality of education that is received is far above that from any other school. The courses offered in engineering and the biomedical field are hard to beat or find at another school, truly preparing interested students for what working in that field would be like. Beyond that, the trimester system places emphasis on the academic classes. The combination of these two schools means that the needs of almost every student is met. However, neither schools is perfect. Carlsbad’s classes are far too large for individual attention and Sage Creek’s ASB fails to connect with students.
I really do like how many classes our school offers to prepare us for college, such as AP classes and Avid. These classes are of course hard but they show us the reality of how college classes really are. Complex concepts, fast pace, and lots of homework. I feel like I’m learning a lot about not only about the subjects but also about the the world outside of high school. That’s why I am preparing for college with these scholarships cause I need to be ready.
